The inspirational true story of an unsung hero

"Conklin bases his well-realized historical novel on Black AAU heavyweight champion Norvel Lee. The author's depth of research is apparent in the detailed chronicle of Lee's life, . . . The author displays a deep understanding of his lead character's biography, and provides convincing exploration of his life circumstances, from his segregated childhood to his WWII service; his development as an athlete; and his civil disobedience in the face of Jim Crow laws." The BookLife Prize

Raised in rural Virginia during the time of Jim Crow, Norvel Lee went on to become a Tuskegee Airman and Olympic champion.  While those achievements were spectacular they are not all he accomplished during his remarkable life.
